Joao is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. We loved the tour. Highly recommended. Sintra is bonkers. It’s best to go early as there were long queues by the time we left.
Begin your private tour with pickup from your Lisbon hotel or port. Board your air-conditioned minivan and set off to discover UNESCO-listed Sintra, Cascais, and Estoril. Discuss your interests with your guide, who can customize the itinerary to suit you.
Visit the Royal Pena National Palace and enjoy the hilltop views, while learning more about the site’s history from your guide. Opt to enter the palace for a closer look (own expense) or continue to Sintra village. Alternatively, visit the nearby Praia Grande, Azenhas do Mar, or Praia da Adraga, depending on your preference.
Enjoy open ocean views at Cabo da Roca, then continue to the popular Guincho Beach. Afterward, head to the coastal town of Cascais with free time to explore its shops and harbor, before making a stop in trendy Estoril.
After a full day’s sightseeing, relax with drop-off back to your Lisbon hotel or port.
